Harvest

Deuteronomy 24:19-21

“When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. “When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow. “When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not go over it again; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow.

Today we celebrated Harvest at our church and surprisingly enough although we have had a lot of sun this summer and very little rain, the Lord still provided and the table was full.

Respect

Ephesians 6 New International Version

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honour your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”[a]

Fathers,[b] do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favour when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.

If as a child you have been brought up in a Christian family or even in some cases non believers home, you will have no doubt been brought up to respect your earthly parents.

I like verse 4 where it gives a warning to parents not to anger or irritate your child but bring them up to know the Lord. I think that has got to be my favourite verse of this passage.

Yes we all can get annoyed with our offspring at times (mine is 27 now and still she drives me up the wall occasionally) but it doesn’t mean to say we love them any less. A year past in October Ii was the proudest man alive as my wee girl got married, though it wasn’t a Church do she was married in a hotel I still had the pleasure of walking her down this long corridor into the room where the wedding was held. I was one proud Dad
